My parents and I will be visiting Boston between September 4-8th, and would love your suggestions on "must-try" restaurants (with, of course, an emphasis on seafood). We are staying at Courtyard Boston (63 R Boston Street, Boston, MA 02125) and are open to travelling via public transit but also have access to a car if needed.
Some places that have caught my eye so far include:
-Island Creek Oyster Bar
-Atlantic Fish Co.
(Open to your comments on the above)
We are flexible on price, and are open to trying seafood shacks as much as fine dining. We particularly love crab cakes, scallops, lobster and oysters. If there are any standout restaurants that aren't seafood-themed, I'd certainly be open to hearing your recommendations on those too.
Are there any special events going on during the timeframe that we'll be in town?
Thank you in advance for your help :)
PS. No need to recommend any Chinese restaurants - we have an abundance back home in Toronto!
